The HDS Executive 120 and 170 are both extremely compact and bright lights. Small size and great output makes the Executive series perfect for the every day carry role.
The only difference between the 120 and 170 versions is the output. As the name implies the 120 version tops out at 120 lumens on high, while the 170 version tops out at 170 lumens on the max brightness setting. Both of the lights utilize a single CR123 lithium battery which provides maximum run time while still maintaining a small package. Both torches also have 4 preset brightness settings allowing you to choose the right amount of output for the task at hand. Along with the great features the Executive series sports the same high quality that all other HDS flashlights have, ensuring years and years of loyal service.
It’s hard to get an idea of how a flashlight works through words, so watch the video below for a better idea.
The JETBeam BA series of lights are highly affordable and reliable; perfect for new flashlights buyers and flashaholics alike.
The different denominations represent the different batteries used to power the lights. The “A” series uses AA batteries, and the “C” series uses the CR123 lithium cell. These lights are no nonsense and very easy to operate. With 2 output modes the user doesn’t have to memorize a complex set of motions just to choose the desired amount of light. The BA series of lights are compact, but still have very high output which makes them perfect for every day carry.

The HDS Rotary R1 is one of those lights that is perfect for every day carry. There are two versions of this light, the R1S and R1B. The only differences between the two are the bezel on the front and the shape of the end cap. The “S” version denotes a silver bezel and an end cap that will tail stand, the “B” version denotes a black bezel and a tactical end cap that will not tail stand.
The Rotary R1 puts out 200 lumens using 1 CR123 lithium primary battery. 200 lumens is a LOT of light for such a diminutive torch. The feature that makes the R1 really shine is the rotary ring. This adjustable ring allows the user to choose .03 lumens, 200 lumens, and anywhere in between. No longer will you have to stick with preset brightnesses that may be too bright or too dim for the task at hand. Using the rotary ring you can instantly choose the exact amount of brightness you desire. This model is popular for a reason!

The Klarus XT-10 is a fairly small and affordable flashlight with tons of output.
Using the new CREE XM-L LED the XT10 is capable of putting out a blinding 470 lumens on the max brightness setting. That is a lot of light for such a modest sized and modest priced torch. The user has a few options when it comes to powering the XT-10. This light accepts either 2 CR123 lithiums, 1 18650 rechargeable, or 2 16340 rechargeable batteries. Flexibility is always a welcome trait as it makes the light much more versatile and therefore more likely to be used. This is a “do it all” kind of flashlight. There isn’t one specific task is was built for, so it excels at doing most anything.
If you are looking for an easy way to get into high output LED lights then this is a great option. This is a nice way to get an insanely bright light while still keeping your wallet padded.
The ThruNite Catapult v3 is a super thrower that utilizes the new CREE XM-L LED.
ThruNite is known for making big throwers and the v3 is no exception. Using the larger XM-L LED the v3 is able to put out 780 lumens while having enough throw to light up objects hundreds of yards away. The quality in manufacturing is improved with this version insuring that all of the parts mate together nicely with no play. The light is operated with a simple switch located on the tail cap, and brightness modes are chosen by tightening or loosening the head of the light.
Unfortunately we have been sold out of this particular light for a while now. It is just a matter of time before ThruNite comes out with something even bigger and badder, so keep your eyes peeled!
